Hey True Believers!
Today’s look is inspired by that badass alien villainess, Deathbird!
Deathbird is known as being one of the X-Men’s many enemies and was also known for constantly trying to take the Shi’ar throne from her sister Lilandra, who was the Empress/Majestrix (to see the look I did based on her, click here). She finally became Empress after marrying Cyclops’ and Havok’s insane long lost brother, Vulcan. She’s also more birdlike in having talons, which is a trait looked down upon by her people (she’s from an avian race, but talons are a symbol of inferiority of evolvement)
Needless to say, she’s a bit unstable! But she has a very cool design and she’s a fierce fighter. I took her trademark eye markings and recreated them using the eyeliner and simplified them a bit, as different artists tend to draw them differently, and also borrowed colors from her armor and cape. The brows have hints of metallic purple like her armor as well. The lipstick I chose also is a reflection of the dark pinks she wears in her headdress and feathered cape.
I hope you like!
So here’s the look from poll #1 you all wanted to see most! I wasn’t entirely happy with how it came out, and so that being said, I will plan on doing a second version of this later on. (As I was applying the shadow I decided I wanted to do something else, but it was too late at that point lol) Anyway, I hope you do like this first version! Again, I base my looks off of character’s costume, skin, and power colors.
